The Saskatchewan government is taking a deeper look at improving highway safety.
The province is putting a stronger focus on the matter following the announcement of a series of construction projects, costing approximately 65 million in tender.
Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure spokesperson Steve Shaheen noted that focus applies to projects here in Regina.
“There’s a fair amount of work still on going around the city of Regina with the Regina bypass,” he said. “There will be some work going on Highway 6 south of the city with some grading and paving of passing lanes.”
About $65 million in tender was issued for the various projects around Saskatchewan.
“Beginning of the construction season will you see a lot of the maintenance crews out there tending to some of the deconstruction over the winter months. That would including blading, hand patching, those type of activities,” said Shaheen.
